Looking Back on a Childhood Voice

Aviva Barraclough tells the tale of finding a tape of her voice from 23 years ago, when she was age five, and had an English accent. Now an adult with an American accent, she is amazed by her voice on the tape. Barraclough found out that her English fiancee was born in Venezula, and has tapes of himself speaking Spanish 23 years ago.
